Christie Vetoes Equality

As promised, New Jersey Governor Chris "Krispy Kreme" Christie has vetoed a bill allowing marriage equality in the state.
That's right, LGBT New Jersey-ites. You.Don't.Matter. To Christie. 
Of course, in typical GOP fashion, he renewed his call for a ballot question to decide the issue, because we've always let the majority rule on the rights of the minority. 
Like when we let men vote on whether to give women the right to vote.
Oh? We didn't?
Well, it's like when we let White America vote on the Civil Rights of Black America?
Oh? We didn't do that either?
But Christie wants straight citizens to vote on the equality of gay citizens.
Chris Christie: "I am adhering to what I've said since this bill was first introduced--an issue of this magnitude and importance, which requires a constitutional amendment, should be left to the people of New Jersey to decide....I have been just as adamant that same-sex couples in a civil union deserve the very same rights and benefits enjoyed by married couples — as well as the strict enforcement of those rights and benefits. Discrimination should not be tolerated and any complaint alleging a violation of a citizen's right should be investigated and, if appropriate, remedied."
Discrimination should not be tolerated? As he vetoed a bill to allow equality?
Typical asshatted GOP'er.

The GOP is pretty much a one song wonder. They consistently sing the same tune, regardless of the impact it might have.
I guess it's because all Repubs share a brain. They're like the Borg, only meaner, and they don't dress as well.

If I lived in Joisey I'd look into a recall election for this idiot. He's a governor, not a king.

My CAPCHA is yedscum much. Very appropriate!
